Can anyone tell me what mass (catholic) is? I've also heard something about how they have confessions or something, any information on that?

Mass and confession are 2 different things on a day, not Sunday, one goes to confession.  They go into the confessional (booth where one sits, a screened opening , on the other side sits a priest. You confess your "sins" and he give you a penance (prayers to say). You leave the confessional, go to a church pue, say those prayers.  Then you are finished till the next time.  Mass is a Catholic Church service.

Cookie is right, Mass is one of the acts of worship, as in the protestant view "going to church". Confession is another act of worship. By going to a priest and confessing the actions you have taken (and I refuse to say sins) in you life since you were there the last time. Two different actions.

I need to add, there are many more parts of worship in the Catholic church then just these 2 forms.

OHHHH. I forgot to mention, you'll burn in hell for being anonymous, for no reason.
